Today, I was sitting on a train, doing homework for my programming class, when a man sat in the seat next to me. He must have been a programmer too, because he spent the next few hours staring at my screen and laughing whenever I made a mistake. FML

Show it anyway

Well, seeing as the FML says he was, yes.

In New York city, you can be on a train for a few hours, so an hour is really not bad. I wish some of my destinations were just an hour. But Op spent a few hours on the train, not just 1. & Op, you should have just looked at him, and said, "If it's so easy, why don't you tell me the right way to do it?" Free homework help!!! He'll feel compelled to show you up, and you'll get your work done faster... If he's any good. (:

It takes 6 hours on the train for me to come home from university... 1 hour isn't too bad!

In the FML it actually says "a few hours" not one hour

The same kind of thing happened to me in class a few weeks ago. Another student walked by my computer, and loudly told his friend how bad of a job I was doing. His friend then just had to check it out for himself.

Actually FML says 'a few hours', so 'an' hour is wrong regardless.

50- The first two people that said that were enough, thank you.

it also could be like an inter-city train… maybe even across the country… doesn't specify really

Not just a hour, it's hours. OP staring at a book or laptop for hours on a train will ruin your eye, unless your trains are extra smooth without vibrations.

Hai guize, he wuz on the trane for a few hourz, not just 1! LOLOLZ

13-Op is in Czech Republic not New York

They probably have trains similar to Europe.

So you're telling me, that in Europe, they have trains Similar to the onen in Europe?

Tell him to mind his own ******* business!

If you allow people to treat you badly, they will always treat you badly. Perhaps it is time to get more assertive and tell rude people to sod off!!

Such foul language from such an adorable kitten.. :p

No no, everyone is approaching this wrong. Let him continue to laugh, and consider it him lending his professional expertise towards quality control on your assignment. He is basically making it impossible for you not to notice errors, so the joke is kinda on him considering your grade should be better for it.

His reply would be. "I can't, I'm a software tester my job is to make the lives of programmers miserable."

Well, I'm sitting here on the train writing comments while a menacing person is watching everything I tybfzsdjklbgvfsdhvgsibgfuisdbv

That's no programmer; that's just a jackass at work!

Lol what's so wrong with having fun at someone's expense

A lot it's pretty ****** maybe if he knew the guy, but a random person uncalled for. Maybe and just maybe if it was a troll old person it would be funny

8, do you usually sit down next to strangers and mock them whenever you take the train?

If he was an old guy, he could get away with it no problem. They have all the fun.

There's a difference. Like others said, it's a jackass move to do that to a random stranger. But in my opinion, there's nothing wrong with finding humor at the expense of someone else, as long as you don't do it in front of them, like this guy is.

Please use commas. On my first read I couldn't explain what you were trying to get across.

Alright, my bad. That's rude, move seats? ;)

30- The wink face combined with your username is kind of creeping me out. o.O

Don't worry 34 you're to old. If you were x>13 you would have reason to worry.

Hours? You should've moved if it was bothering you. And hey, think of it positively, at least you were aware of your mistakes :)

I read your profile and am quite I big hunger games fan too, as you can see :) I know that K x P equals Katniss and Peeta and A x F equals Annie and Finnick, but who are C and C? Sorry it's just really bugging me :P

I think c and c is Cato and Clove, I could be wrong though

I would be grateful if I were you. He's like free spellcheck...for programming.

unknown_user5566 26

I would've asked the guy for help, then. May as well get a free tutoring session if the guy thinks he's so smart.

hell, OP while you're at it charge him for the lesson as well.

Great! I like your comment, so I cant thumb you down :(

unknown_user5566 26

116- I'm confused. Is that a bad thing?

Coding and programming isn't easy, My parents do it for a living! Brush it off OP! Just another stranger youll never see again

Truth has been spoken. -A Pogrammer

I'm pretty sure 73 knows how to spell "programmer." It looked to me as it were a simple typo. There's no need to be an asshole about it.

gmc_blossom 21

Speaking of typos... *as if it were.

I wonder if that guy was trained to be a jackass.
